Firefox issue with flash container

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
10 hours ago my desktop was executing flash perfectly fine on Firefox 15, Aurora, Nightly and Waterfox. Turned it off, turned it on a while ago and anytime I try to load flash anywhere, the browsers decide to stall on loading and are stuck there. When I open task manager I see two 4-10 MB flash plugin containers. I have to terminate one of them to get the browser going. I've reinstalled flash a few times to no result. Restarted a few times, to no result. I even downgraded to version 14 to no result. I even used a beta of flash to no result. I haven't installed anything for weeks and my AV and malware monitor show zilch.

Firefox and Flash aren't playing nice these days, unfortunately. Many, many users are experiencing the same issue and crashes and drawing issues when scrolling. Still waiting for proper fixes. You can try uninstalling Flash and installing the older 10.3 Flash to see if that helps any as a temp workaround.

I cleared my cache and cookies and it fixed it. I'm not sure what happened. It's the most bizarre bug I've ever come across, but I did submit it as feedback.
